is crucial to how al qaeda is evolving and the way it is using local insurgencies. before i went to yemen, some colleagues encouraged me to look at the drone issue, as well. not just a question of how al qaeda interfaces with indigenous tribes. there were two arguments. the human rights committee was making the arguments that drone strikes are the approximate cost of al qaeda's effort in yemen. there are numbers to back that. the operational capacity since 2009. on the national security side, i had colleges said, let's figure out if our drone strikes are helping us to deal with a terrorist challenge. when i got to yemen, i interviewed for the tribal and religious leaders. i found both of these narratives we had in washington, that the drone strikes helping us set up in yemen and they are causing the growth of al qaeda in yemen had no relation to what is happening on the ground. what i did find is that al qaeda's recruiting is not driven by a u.s. drone strikes. not ideology or religion. it is driven by desperation. yemen's live in $60 economies. in a region that is cut off from the rest o
. now, in 1983 during the recession, president raing be increased state to state local government and 2003 during the recession, republican president george w. bush increased state aid to state and local government. this is the first time that conservatives in the republicans and congress have actually chosen to starve state and local governments during a recession and leading them to do for stupid things like ask for the tacks and encourages socially irresponsible behavior like not calling the fire department. >> brenda: toby, shouldn't they just get their spending under control instead of adding new tax sns. >> i don't think we're in a recession, right now, fyi. and if you actually put some actual fees and spend on this, now, 25% of the phone calls in the 411, are not right. i mean they're a wrong call. 911, i'm sorry. ambulance the same deal, half of them are fake calls and i think that actually helps get the costs down because it has people think, i would have to pay for a visit. >> okay. jonas, last word. >> you know, the 800 number for the police-- 900 number. >> and the sta
to disrupt not just at the local level, but the global economy. unfortunately, what you're hearing is too much of the gloom and doom in terms of where america is when it comes to competitiveness. my view is that it is still the best country on the planet when it comes to starting up a business, advancing an idea you have or access to talent. the challenge we have before us because we are the architect of our own destiny, that there are key issues we need to confront. if you look at the next 30 years, if you do not address them, i do not think we can remain the most competitive country in the world. first, i think it comes down to immigration. it is broken. it makes absolutely no sense when we educate some of the smartest people in the world with advanced degrees and then ask them to leave the country and go start up companies elsewhere. why are we not stapling right to their graduate application a visa or a green card? second, when it comes to education, the challenge we have domestically is that that system is also broken as we look for the next 30 years. in detroit, for example, there w
? but the federal government wouldn't do anything? and then forget the state and local government. are you kidding me? privatize it? how insane is that? so if you're poor and you couldn't afford whatever rates that romney's friends were going to charge you after he privatized it, sad day for you? ha ha, you get stuck in that? that's a disastrous idea! this is about the core role of the government. are we here for each other in times like this or do we just leave each other to fend for ourselves. apparently romney clearly says during this election cycle during these primary debates they had among the republicans says fend for yourselves, i'm going to make a buck off of it. he was asked about that numerous times today on the campaign trail. he just wouldn't answer. watch. >> cenk: well, that was wonderfully awkward. those are simple questions. answer the question. finally, how incompetent is your campaign? you didn't think they would ask you a question about fema today after you just said during the primaries you would get ri
now turn their focus to some local voters. good morning and welcome to news4 today. i'm eun yang. >> i'm aaron gilchrist. the roads may be just slick enough to slow you down this morning. a live look outside right now at 6:00 a.m. we know that some folks are starting to see some rain drops coming through the area. tom kierein is here to break it all down for us. >> just some scattered light rain. don't have any heavy downpours like we had the other day. but enough to make the pavement wet, and for fender benders, as we've already had several of those. right now, all of this coming as a front is moving into our area and going to bring an end to the high humidity. it's still humid this morning with the showers. there are some moderate showers where you see this one batch of orange and yellow here in western charles county. that's advancing a bit to the north and east and should be around the prince george's county beltway in about ten minutes. the rest of northern virginia, just a few scattered light sprinkles. much of maryland and up in toward the pennsylvania border. temperatures are m
five good gcse's from 12% when they were under local authority control to almost 90% now. it has been astonishing. you know what -- the methods have been conservative. smart uniforms, teachers in suits, children caught fizz -- taught physics, chemistry, and biology, not soft options. extra resources for those in need, but no excuses for slacking. when you see as a parent schools like that, you have one question -- why can that not every school be like that way? it is not because parents are not ambitious enough. most of the schools are massively oversubscribed. it is because the old educational establishment, the left-wing local authorities, the leaders of the teacher unions -- they stand in the way. when we saw it that the failing school and wanted to turn it into an academy, the labor authority, the labor mp, and the teaching authorities said no. with inspirational teachers and parents, when they wanted to open free schools, the left-wing establishment said no. when we propose more pay for good teachers, getting rid of bad teachers, longer school days to help children learn, flexibl
. and i became involved for the first time at the national level. i've always been a local activist local and state level but i went to my first national green party meeting at that point to ensure that we would not let this outrage of dismantling medicare and social security go unchallenged. you know what happens when you join a recruiting committee sometimes you get recruited. the rest is where we are today. >> john: i'm glad you mentioned nutrition because while we all admire what the president and his wife have done to encourage kids to exercise, pretty much no one one in d.c. politics that americans eat food that isn't really food. it underscores a point. a lot of folks who don't know better think the green party is about environmental issues but really it is about everything, isn't it? >> it really is. and i think -- you know, the thing about green is that we see how things are connected. and in fact, we got two crises right now. one is a crisis with our economy and the other crisis is the crisis in clima
interest deduction, the charitable deduction, the state and local property tax deduction. realized that as much as we want to make the code more efficient, these provisions were two essential to middle-class households. we have to abide by the same principle today. if we seek to protect the expenditures that are most essential to the middle-class, we still hope to reduce the deficit and we will need to find alternative revenue sources. this leads to the second principle of this new model for tax reform -- the tax rate for the highest earners should probably return to clinton-era levels and stay somewhere around there. this will come as heresy to some of those on the other side who not only wish to extend the current rate in the upcoming lame duck session but also about to cut rates even further in tax reform. these folks believe cutting the top rate as low as 25% is a necessary ingredient to spur an economic recovery. a congressional research service analysis released last month suggests otherwise. they are impartial and in a survey, the last 65 years of fiscal policy in america, t
the deficit, he said he could make the math work by eliminating local public funding for pbs. by the way, this is not new. this is what he has been saying every time he is asked a question. we can cut out pbs. for all you moms and kids out there, do not worry. somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. who knew that he was driving our deficit? we are going after that. he has decided we are going after big bird. elmo is making a run for the border. the governor romney once wall street who run wild, but he is going -- if governor romney wants wall street to run wild, but he is going to bring down the hammer on "sesame street." we cannot afford another round of tax cuts for the wealthy. we cannot afford to roll back regulations on banks and insurance companies. we cannot got our investments on education, clean energy, research, technology. that is not a plan to grow the economy. that is not change. we have been there. we have tried that. we are not going back. we are moving forward. that is why i am running for a second term as president of the united states. [applause] look -- we have
that fema personnel are working closely with state and local governments. we are making sure that food and water and emergency generation is available for those communities that will be hardest hit. we anticipate that the center of the storm will hit landfall sometime this evening, but because of the nature of this storm, we are certain that this will be a slow-moving process through a wide swath of the country. millions of people will be affected. the most important message i have for the public right now is, please listen to what your state and local officials are saying. when they tell you to evacuate, you need to evacuate. do not delay. do not pause, do not question the instructions been given because this is a serious storm and it could potentially have fatal consequences if people have not acted quickly. the good news is, the governors and local officials have had a few days of preparation. there has been extraordinarily close coordination between state, federal, and local governments. we are confident the assets are pre-positioned for an effective response in the aftermath of th
within the next four years. it means also helping local school districts that sometimes find the parents of school age children outvoted on bond issues, to give them some help with interest-free bonding authority so that we can build new schools and modernize the classrooms. we need to give teachers the training and professional development that they need, including a paid time off to go visit the classroom of a master teacher to pick up some new skills. i want to give every middle- class family a $10,000 a year tax deduction for college tuition so that middle-class families will always be able to send their kids on to college. i want to work for universal free school because we know from all the studies that the youngsters learn, kids learn more in the first few years of life than any where else. now, i said there was a contrast. governor bush is for vouchers, and in his plan he proposes to drain more money, more taxpayer money out of the public schools for private school vouchers than all of the money that he proposes in his entire budget for public schools themselves. and only one in
dissertation research, i got in my car, drove around the country and interviewed local level tea party leaders and local diners and restaurants we sat down. i went to virginia, pennsylvania, kentucky, utah, california and do a surprising how similar the worldviews of these tea partiers were and yet so distinct from my academic colleagues at ucla where i've been getting a phd. for the first one i'd like to make, one thing that sets the tea party apart from many others if they have a very traditional review. so essentially, they have this view america's land of opportunity and that all people regardless of backgrounds can succeed. now this is not to say, but they have this even more so and this is how the answer poll questions and how they help explain a lot of there there policy positions that other people have a hard time understanding. the scope of this. so these are some signs i took at a washington d.c. tea party protest here by the capital. you often see signs like this. don't spread my wealth. spread my work ethic. stop punishing and rewarding failure. this is all part of a common thing.
, including the associated press and local television stations. but the most outrageous comments were completely ignored, further proof that the mainstream media has been in the pocket of barack obama since he day he arrived on the national stage. let's take a look at what the left-wing press has been hiding since 2007. we begin with senator obama, repeatedly praising the reverend reverend jeremiah wright, who was in the crowd. keep in mind, by the time the speech was delivered in june of 2007, reverend wright was a known quantity in the world of politics, dis-invited to barack obama's campaign announceility, and appeared in "hannity" months earlier, as he attempted to defend his controversial views. by the way, his last appearance on tv during that campaign. yet, here's what then-senator obama said about him then. >> then i have to give a special shoutout to my pastor... the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me -- [chuckles] ... he's a friend and a great leader, not just in chicago but across the country. please, everybody, give an extraordinary
into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, romney is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack, if biden doesn't do a good job against ryan, and if the president doesn't show up and isn't strong in the second debate, then you're going to have a tossup race. >> well, i would disagree with your approach, first of all. i don't approach it that way. that's going back and relegating all the old arguments. in spirit what i would do, unlike shrumy, i would take the big issue that is separating the candidates, don't get into the little trench warfare about what's your tax plan and where were you on medicare two weeks ago. i would say where did you stand on saving the american auto industry? you had one position, i had a
? >> the primary responsibility is at the state and local level. i agree with arne duncan. some ideas he has put forward on race to the top. some of them i agree with and congratulate him on pursuing that. the federal government can get state and local schools. i wanted the kids who are getting federal dollars from title 1 -- disabled kids or lower income kids, i went and to be able to go to the kids at -- to the school of their choice. i would have them follow the child and let the parent and child decide where to send their student. >> how do you see the federal government's responsibility to improve the quality of education? >> it has a significant role to play. we have worked with republican and democratic governors to initiate major reforms. they are having an impact right now. this is where budgets matter. budgets reflect choices. when gov. romney indicates that he wants to cut taxes and potentially benefit people like me and him, to pay for it we have to initiate significant cuts in federal support for education, that makes a difference. his running mate congressman ryan put forward a bud
't ideological at all. sometimes the group that benefits a local library is a 501(c)(3). it's charitable organization. a c-4 can spend in elections. because there are so many wealthy donors and corporations on the right, this election cycle to defeat president obama, they are pouring money into these groups that don't have disclose -- >> that $74 million spent in opposition to the president with only $5.1 million spent in opposition to governor romney, it isn't because of a law issue, it's because of an actual resource. >> we saw the same disparate in 2004 when president bush and there was a very strong opposition to president bush. >> we say if you want to know, follow the money. you a strategy for following the money. >> we brought all the money. >> i'm looking at the table now which looks like apparently we're going to go down to florida to a strip club afterward. that's not what's going on here. explain what's going on with this money on the table. >> you know, corporations and the wealthiest .01% of the country are making their money talk by giving gobs of its to politicians expecti
is usually 100-yard long before you get to the beach. >> fema personnel are working with state and local governments. >> there are things flying off the roof here. >> 30-foot waves on top of 10 to 11 to 12-foot storm surge. >> this is not a time to be stupid. >> the national guard is not too far from husband. >> a lot of people are endureing very difficult times. >> 900 miles wide. that's the tropical storm. >> the crane is dangling above west 56th street. >> sandy has everyone scrambling. >> i'm not worried about the impact on election. i'm worried about the impact on families. >> this is what we live for. >> cenk: all right "viewpoint" is not on the air today because they're in new york, and obviously all of new york is suffering through storm sandy and i can give you the latest. in fact, it just made ground fall in southern new jersey as we speak. the winds are still up to 60 to 80 mph. we've got coastal flooding and 2 million people without power already. on top of that we just also heard unfortunately we have our first storm-related fatality in maryland. so obviously the storm is ve
prevent attacks on u.s. troops in afghanistan from local police or service members if the goal to train them? >> well, first of all, i would not -- never stand here and say we can prevent it. there will be, again, this is an enemy tactic. infiltration, radicalization, influence. you know, this is a society that has suffered under conflict for 30-plus years where young men have often settled their grievances with a gun as opposed to a conversation. and so i can't prevent it. i mean, i just -- we've got to be honest about that. but what we can do is we can continue to work to mitigate that risk, and it's a complex issue. it gets at how do they come into the service, we call it vetting. and then it's while they're in the service, how do we, how do we partner with them to establish that level of trust that -- by the way, i mean, i think it's important to note, and the australians came to the same conclusion. it's often, one of the ways you can mitigate the risk is actually by becoming closer to them, not by walking away from them. you can't commute, i mean, this is just a fact, and i've don
legislation with a republican from missouri to help the community colleges to turn our local work force training to be more attuned with local business needs. veterans told me that the job skills they acquired in the military that they wanted to put to work here at home. the only ohioan to have a full term on the veterans committee, we want to help. in the fall of 2008, i remember vividly number of conversations with small business owners with workers in the automobile industry. i saw the fear in his face and the anxiety in his voice that he worried about the plant closings. how can i provide for my family, pay my mortgage? how can my daughter continue her education at community college? so i went to work to come first with president bush in fall 2008 and then with president obama in 2009 with dick lugar, carl levin, senators from all over this part of the country. it's not just about the big assembly plants in toledo, but it's about components in brunswick, the steel and aluminum made in this city. we talk about the owner of the diner and the manufacturers. there are real problems, rea
thing back to what you say the national versus the local, i believe at the beginning of the convention was that the local conditions on the ground didn't really matter. it was the national economy. it was the national messaging, and that everything would sort of stwing in the same direction at the same time. this campaign has sort of pushed that logic aside. we see states like ohio where the president is hanging strong, and orr ones like wisconsin where he gained 15 points on him. >> i remember the reaction of democrats and republicans in 2000. the thing that jumped out at me. week brs the 2000 election, the assumption was that al gore had the electoral college advantage. bus would win the popularity joke. the republicans began to make noise, and it involved potentially trying to flip over gore electors and stay the will of the people needs to be up respected ear. that changed that philosophy when the results came in. i wonder what your reaction would be and what you think the reaction of the conservatives in general would be if this time around romney wins the popular vote and barack
cannot be dealing with every security request for merit local american outpost around the world. the president and vice president have more important work to do. to lay them at the foot of the president is not necessarily fair. it raises the level of presidential attention. president obama says we have strengthened security and have launched a full investigation into the attacks libya. those are the areas the president can do something. host: we have comments coming in on twitter with different opinions. host: this is from jerseygirlinpa. how much do you think the past will be brought up? or will that not be touched enough by the candidates. guest: romney will not raise it. he has distanced himself from the last republican president. how were early george w. bush' -- how rarely charge of the name has been bush's mentioned over the past few years. i think a lot of the issues have moved beyond the problems initiated under the last presidency. the real focus now, the arab spring, events in the middle east, events in asia -- these are particular to our period. i did not expect the t
think you're right that people want to hear specifics. although, states and government -- local officials warning it takes some time. it's very, very complicated. nobody really -- the forkers warned of this but i don't think people thought it would be this bad, as bad as it is that you would have power out in 60% of a state. >> absolutely. to this point, it is not as if people are blaming fema or blaming administrators. they want some answers which is a natural reaction, especially when you're going through what so many are in this region. thank you very much, ron. i appreciate you sticking around. >>> with six days to election day, governor romney resumed a full campaign schedule today. he's in florida right now. about to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to
a little bit of success in the congress when i was there resolving local issues when it comes to land it. the way to do it is to work with lotus -- local leaders to resolve those issues. the congressman's approach was to write to the president of the united states to ask him with a stroke of his pen to create a national monument without resolving any of the local issues that are still there. i do not think washington should be doing that and overriding local control and resolution here. those extremes in olfaction approaches do not work in the long term to resolve land disputes. >> actually, i was writing to the president at the behest of the whole coalition of local leaders, from the mayor of las cruces to many of the local clubs. one of the broadest bipartisan groups of supporters i have ever seen. i think we should listen to them. there is an overwhelming support to a new national monument. i am very happy to join with the local support and help make that happen. >> by denying the controversy exists is not make it go away. these 30 cattle growers that have grazing permits on the west
. but again, part of this change is something that in the chapter is how do we move the local process to do things differently. of the how to structure policy and what structures to insert communicating across agencies. >> you want to talk a little bit about network? and we get the mic of your? we will have more time for questions and comments after the second. >> i guess what i would say this just in general that we do try to pay quite a bit of attention to the political dynamics, which is something that i think is more background, which is including sort of terry's analysis which i agree with, much of it. i agree a mix system is where we are, what makes is. but the premise that in a mixed system are going to get a highly redistributed system i think as a political question, and it's problematic to we addressed primarily by looking at two things. one is it's a data issue that helen has mentioned i want to emphasize one aspect of it, which is weird at all interested in the chapter in comprehensive view of what government does but also how we assess what works and doesn't work. right now man
grounds, he gets some coverage here in the local media market, it also gives him an opportunity, you heard david pluff talking about libya on a sunday show, he was down-playing the president's expectation saying he's not such a great debater, he hasn't done this in four years since debating john mccain where as mitt romney had all this practice. even last night the president was trying to downplay his expectations. >> who is going to put the most points on the board? [you are ] >> no, no, governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard-working americans. >> i'm just okay the president says in terms of debating, although i remember back in tpwaeut 2008 he did a pretty good job against hillary clinton. a pretty good job with john mccain. by the way, no sign of lindsay lohan here yet. jenna: where are the celebrities going to come in next. ed you're better than okay. back toed as news warrants in las vegas. i gregg: if she was there you would
, outside las vegas. and he made a surprise visit monday to a local campaign office and also called several volunteers on the phone to say thank you for helping his re-election effort. >> everything you do ends up making a huge difference in us being able to win nevada and win the election. so, just keep it up. >> nancy cordes is in henderson, covering the obama campaign. good morning. >> reporter: norah, good morning. while the president does his homework, the obama campaign team is working hard itself to trying to lower expectations for the president's performance. white house press corps was chuckling yesterday when they tried to argue that the president's tendency toward answers may be a liability in a debate where candidates are expected to be succinct. they're also arguing that the president hasn't had as much time to prepare for this debate as governor romney. we don't know exactly how much less time he has had, because the campaign doesn't tell us how much time he spends practicing. they like us to think it is very little time, indeed. what we do know is that he is holed up at a wes
employees and families of a local company gathered to watch annual fireworks to celebrate the founding of the people's republic of china. many in the hospital were under 12. other children never made to it the hospital and are among the dead. a surviving passenger described panic as the boat sank. >> transtor: my leg was stuck and i couldn't get it out. i thought i wouldn't be able to get it out and i was going to die. the water was suffocating me. my friend tugged on me and got my leg out. >> reporter: this is the scene of the collision. the boat half submerged right behind me. search-and-rescue operations are still under way. boats are patrolling the area looking for survivors. there's a helicopter circling overhead. in what could be hong kong's most fatal accident investigators are wondering what happened. hong kong's chief executive has promised a full investigation. >> translator: as we consearch and rescue efforts we'll gate this incident and understand what cause this. >> reporter: rescue officials added low visibility may have contributed to the disaster. chong has more than 20
this is a massive investigation. there are hundreds of cops, state and local working this case. there was a briefing today. this community is in fear. they want this solved at quickly as possible. there is a strong belief that the killer is local. the naked in little park where she was abducted is very isolated. that is why police are asking for the public's help to report anyone that is acting out of the ordinary. >> our focus has changed from a search for jessica to a mission of justice for jessica. >> denver suburb of hundred thousand residents has a small town feel. people are coming together united with their grief for jessica and fear of a monster on the loose. kids are getting counseling. there a crisis center that has been set up in the city. purple balloons are going up in a couple of hours. one neighbor told me he robbed a beautiful young life and put a whole community on lockdown. you don't see kids out playing without parents watching them. >> we need to find him. >> reporter: and colorado governor called this an unthinkable end to an unthinkable crime in this community. >> gregg: dan sp
.m., right? we're looking at 11:00 a.m. local time. about three hours ago. 11:00 a.m., this is when families start to go out and start to shop. describe how busy from what you understand the mall was at that time? >> it is a very large shopping center. and it should be noted that the spa is not in the mall. it is adjacent to the mall. but when we say mall -- >> do you mean across the street? >> yes. when we say mall, it is not just one building. this is a place where there are many, many buildings and it has, it's a huge shopping center. it's very crowded over the weekend. and initially that's why it was such a big deal to have the entire brookfield square mall area shut down. an interesting thing that we've been hearing from witnesses is that the mall was not lock down immediately. because again authorities were trying to determine exactly what they had here. >> do you know hows that reacted from the first call to when they arrived? >> we're still awaiting information from authorities. we have been hearing from witnesses who are around the area of brookfield square mall when this happened a
points, 49-45. >> last night in denver, romney was endorsed by local football hero john elway. romney told the crowd that the debates will be crucial to the campaign. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. and the american people are going to have to make their choices as to what kind of america they want. >> jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in denver. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. this is romney's moment. the campaign knows the stakes here. of course, he's done this before. there were those 23 debates in the republican primaries, but this is different. it's one-on-one, and part of his debate prep has been working on that head-to-head match-up with senator rob portman playing president obama. on the campaign plane the other day, romney came back to talk to reporters and i asked him point-blank if he thinks he can win. he said look, the president has been trying to fool people into thinking things that i don't. and that ends at the debate. he said i can't tell you winners and l

up. probably a place where they can put guests out to do interviews with local television stations or across the country. a place where they'll be watching the debate. not to be outdone, it looks like barack obama has the same kind of setup. of course, these two studios but up against what we call the spin room. spin room is where we're going to see surrogates and some of the top campaign officials that are going to come after the debate and they're going to try to tell us why they think their candidate won. >> mark joining us live from the scene of the debate. loss no other spot where i would rather be. that is incredible. i don't know if a lot of people actually really realize that you have folks who are coming in and who are just trying to convince you this is a guy who won, this is a guy who lost, and, of course, mark, you and our team will make sense of all of that. how many international jushlists are there? >> well, they say there's 700 foreign journalists being credentialed for this debate. that's an enormous amount. 3,000 journalists total who are here on site just coverin
